“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” - Matthew 5:16
“We exist to glorify God by our words and actions, to unify believers in the Body of Christ, to reach the lost with His Gospel and serve our fellow man.”
Our purpose as a church is not only a recognized command from the Creator of the Universe, it’s an honor to be used by God in this world! His purpose for this group of believers at North Highlands is monumental yet not overwhelming. His purpose for us is both local and global! His purpose is given to us with the promise that He will never leave us and He will always strengthen us as we pursue His purpose in our lives! We exist to glorify God in all we do in service to others and in all we say to the many people we come in contact with on a daily basis. We desire that all believers would unify under the banner of Christ alone, forsaking divisions, and surrendering to unity in the name of Jesus! Empowered by unity, love and truth, we seek to show this world the wonderful truth of a loving Father and a glorious Savior!
“…In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” - Romans 8:37-39
As we begin 2019 in the service of the Lord, we must remember the great blessings of 2018. I pray that each family at North Highlands has resolved to attend every Bible class and worship service as we encourage others in this new year! We worship together, lifting up the God of all grace, and building up our common faith! But don’t stop with actions, let’s speak up more at school and work about all God has done for us! The growth we’ve experienced this past year has been a major encouragement! With several new families, our future continues to look even brighter! With heaven we rejoiced at the baptisms of 10 precious souls this year! The kingdom has enlarged, and we praise God for each one who chose to submit to His gospel during 2018! Many others restored their relationships with the King of Glory, and we are all blessed to see the faith of each member growing as the days pass! Let 2019 be a year of deepening your faith by studying of the Bible!
As you consider this plan of work, pray for each person who contributes to the success of our ministries. Pray for God to continue to bless our church family. Pray for us to be faithful to our purpose. And each day, have confidence that you make a difference in the kingdom of God!
In the love of Christ,
